Facing an uncertain future, a prominent nightclub in Southampton finds itself at a crossroads as its owners have recently disclosed their intention to bring in administrators.

Once the bustling Cannon cinema, the Square Balloon on Above Bar transformed the building from a picture house to a cutting-edge nightspot in the early 1990s.

Its main feature was the prominent rotating screens above the bar, and its vast menu of expensive cocktails was extremely popular too.

The dress code was strict and always enforced – if you weren’t wearing shoes, you weren’t getting in.

The venue was later renamed The Square and remained as such until its closure and reopening as Provenance in 2012.

Provenance was short-lived as was its successor Myth.

Finally the club became Switch in 2015.

Despite being at the beating heart of Southampton's nightlife for nine years,  it has been hit by increasing costs and clubbers cutting back as a result of rising inflation.
